Banana Nut Bread

We have a great Banana Nut Bread recipe. The girls love to make it when we have some bananas that have gotten so brown and soft that no one will eat them. We try to get to them before the fruit flies swarm in.

First you need three over-ripe bananas.

Squish the heck out of them.

Daintily gather together your implements of cooking.

Dissolve 1 teaspoon of baking soda into 4 tablespoons of buttermilk.

Take time to stop and smell the orchids.

Take care not to get your hair caught in the beaters.

Crack three eggs into a mixing bowl.

See if you can make it look like a face.

Or a body with two heads.

Beat the eggs into submission and add 1 1/2 cups of sugar, 1/2 cup of oil, the buttermilk with the soda dissolved in it, and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Mix well.

Add two cups of plain flour, the mashed bananas, and 1 cup of chopped nuts.

When everything is blended well, add 1 teaspoon of vanilla.

Pour into a well greased loaf pan.
Bake at 325 degrees for 50-60 minutes.

Eat it really fast before anyone can take a picture of it.
